Incorporated in 1918 and officially opened by the then-Mayor in October 1919, we’re one of the oldest clubs in New Zealand. We continue to be one of the most successful, with several top-ranked players and talented new recruits in both AC and GC. Seven of our members competed in last year’s WCF AC World Championships. Currently, more than 10% of our players are nationally ranked and we’re proud of the inclusive way they readily share their skills with other Club members. It’s what makes our Club special and helps new players feel even more welcome.
Golf or Association Croquet
Members can choose to play either Golf or Association Croquet, or both. Most of our beginners choose to start playing golf croquet and many go on to play Association.
The Club provides mallets for members and beginners, as well as all balls and hoops. Dress code is casual. The only requirement is that flat-soled shoes are worn on lawns.

Summer club play is Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and Mondays & Thursdays from 10am to 1pm, from mid-September to May.
